posted on my facebook page. i hear you support common core education standards. i'll never watch your show again. another said, if you support common core, you have hoes -- you've lost my trust. another one, you need to learn the truth about common core. the person who said he never would watch my show again won't hear this and that's too bad. i want to cut to the chase itch don't support what common core has become in many states or school districts. i'm dead set against the federal government creating a uniform curriculum for any subject. i oppose the collection of personal data on students that would identify them and then track them, and certainly any effort to give that personal information to the federal government. i am steadfast in my belief that parents, parents, should ultimately decide. the best for their children's education, whether it's public schools, private schools, religious schools, or home schools. i believe education is a local or state function, not a federal one. sadly, the very lel, common core, has come to be associated with things i detest, like agenda-driven
